As you see,when you enter a post,you become subscribed to that 'thread",and get notified anytime someone responds to a thread you've posted to..........When you have an enquiry ,the best thing to do is use the search and try different key words like maybe'swap 460--360',or whatever...it is said that everything has been asked and answered here before.
That being said,the generosity of information that people share here is quite amazing,and don't worry about the novice feeling you have>>>>>EVERYONE HAS BEEN THERE!!!--The main thing is to gather and describe symptoms as best you can,and use a clear heading when you start a thread (swap 460>360).Also,do your best to find the most appropriate section to post,,,(engine swapping).
I joined 7 weeks ago and have been assisted ,advised,humored,cajoled,and encouraged through the complete restoration of an engine fire.To the point of being able to share assistance with others,and save the veterans for the tougher questions!!--An apprenticeship like that would be hard to find anywhere,at any price!!!.........cheers...M
.........postnote....Ironically,this thread is where I posted my first enquiry ,much like yours!!--feels rather like full circle!!!

I actually did this about 10 years ago in my 73 f250. Not too hard but there are a few things you should know. First, you trans. won't work unless you get some kind of an adaptor. Even if you have a C6, the bellhousing bolt pattern is diff. for a 460 C6. You will need a C6 from a 351M,400, 429 or 460. You will need motor mount pedestals from the salvage yard for a 460. Mid to late 70's would probably work best because they are easy to find. If you can take them off the other truck, you can tell which set of holes that you will need to use in your frame. I would also recommend getting a mid to late 70's electronic ignition dist. and converting your truck to the duraspark ignition. this isn't hard and works much better than points and cond. I would not recommend a motorcraft 4bbl carb. They are junk. I would use either an edelbrock carb or a new style holley that has a one piece floatbowl/throttleplate. Other style holleys work great but are prone to leak. Also diff. is:starter, flywheel, a/c hoses, throttle linkage and engine wiring harness
i know it's been awhile since these posts, but maybe docholiday72tx could help?
as i have it now, have 460 in rolling chassis, but back of engine is 2 inches forward of imput shaft of transmission, so maybe motormount choice will correct that?
